    Lots of sunscreen!!! Then since you are a passenger - just sit back and enjoy the wonderful sounds of wind, water and sail.

    Well so far we've sailed to Tzia twice in a month to gain some sailing experience on a smaller boat before we advance to bigger yachts. It was great! No nausea, no spilled drinks, no "may day" screams (besides...it's june :P) . Here are some pics from our latest one day trip to Tzia on June 8th.
    We even got to see a local sailbot race from Athens to Tzia and back.

    Beautiful pictures, thanks for sharing! I'd love to visit Greece, but with these euro prices, it'll be a while :-(

    Becky: I know what you mean, some things are expensive even for us residents. Right now island hopping on a sailing boat comes cheaper than getting a ferry or charter air tickets and spending the night. That's why I'm spending a week in the isles and my real vacations will be in September in Germany.
